Big oil means big money. Very big money. And that fact unleashes corruption that stretches from Houston to Washington to the Mideast - and ensnares industrialists, princes, spies, politicians, oilfield workers and terrorists in a deadly, deceptive web of move and countermove.
I liked it. Not a lot, but I liked it.

The first scene lets you believe theres gonna be some excitement in this film, but it takes on a more brooding aspect after that. Lovely to look at, the locations are beautiful and for some reason I didnt get bored. Plot is pretty tough to follow unless you have a knowledge of international politics and oil trading, which I do not. For some reason however it didnt bore me at all. A sunday afternoon rather than saturday night film.
